I recently programmed my BCD996XT scanner for Houston Police/Fire on one site (Houston General Government) and seperated this site from my Harris County Site (Houston Simulcast) Noticed the only way to hear both was to seperate them and the sites both are heard. The issue I am having, and it may be a simple fix is my Harris County frequencies ie Pct 5 Dispatch, of which is on the Houston Simulcast is showing up on the Houston General site but cannot be heard and I have to dial the simulcast channel back in everytime I turn the scanner off and back on. How do I get this corrected if anyone has any answers.
